We went with a party of 9. The waitress was excellent. The chowder was great. The rest of the food was not. My sons cheeseburger was a hockey puck- he ate one bite. My salmon burger was dry and plain- I had to ask for the sauce that was supposed to come with it. The rest of the food was... More

Casual attire, valet parking only.. The lobster roll was delicious but pricey. We went with 2 small children and it was fine

My wife and I recently had dinner at Chapin's Restaurant in Dennis. We just did beat the dinner crowd having arrived around 4:30 or so. We were seated by a very friendly hosted who proceeded to escort us to our outdoor table. Within 15 minutes families were forming a line to get be seated. We ate light. I had a... More

Chapin's is a good spot for typical cape cod food and more. They have the typical fish and chips but also had Mexican food to a Raw Bar as well as Gluten Free options. Seafood Cakes were delicious as well as the fried pickles, and Fish and Chips. They do have outside seating but it is first come first serve.... More

Always in demand. Valet service mandatory. Not many places like this anywhere. Food was excellent and the menu quite in keeping with the Cape. An excellent value. Go early, this place is busy

Love the location and the bar but the food and the service were just okay. It was a busy Friday night and there was clearly not enough kitchen or wait staff. Our waitress was working so hard to keep up but she just couldn't. Highlight of the night was the calamari appetizer and the unbelievably large portion of chicken Alfredo.... More

My family just came back from a long weekend from Cape Cod and my husband was excited to go to dinner at this restaurant. We were there 2-3 years ago and the food was great. This time it was awful! His favorite seafood with marinara sauce was not on the menu anymore. Olivia our waitress thinks it was a "special"... More

I recently had dinner here with my mother and sister. I follow a gluten free diet, and this place came up on a search for gluten free food. We were surprised to see there was valet parking upon arriving. Once inside it looks much larger than it does from the outside. We had to wait about 30 minutes for a... More

Stopped in for dinner. Both my husband and I were pleased with our selections. They provide outdoor dining spaces and grassy areas for children and adults to "play" lawn games. If you're hungry while waiting make sure to ask for popcorn. We didn't and wished we had known it was offered.

We've come to this place to eat each time we visit the Dennis, MA area. The service and food are excellent. The fish is always so fresh. The atmosphere always enjoyable too. We've not eaten in the dinning room as we prefer the high top table in the bar area. Our server this night was Lauren and she was very... More
